Good Government Awards: How SFpark Revolutionized Parking, for Everyone

March 22, 2012

SPUR's 32nd annual Good Government Awards, held March 19, honored City of San Francisco employees who have performed exceptionally, becoming models for other agencies and cities around the country.

The SFpark Pilot Program team — Jay Primus, George Reynolds, Steven Lee and Lorraine Fuqua — was honored for its implementation of its groundbreaking smart parking management program. SFpark is the most progressive parking management program in the United States; using sensors to gather and share real-time data about available parking spots, it provides convenience to drivers, reduces traffic from people looking for parking and moves the city toward a demand-based pricing system. The SFpark team designed and implemented a large pilot program under tight time constraints, demonstrating innovation within an area of the public realm that is often taken for granted.
